Announcing Streets Dept’s “10 Years Photo Show”

March 2, 2021

What better way to celebrate 10 years of my photo-blog than with a photo show! Over the next two months I’m thrilled to be hosting an open exhibition at BOK‘s new Workshop space, a new commercial, food, and artistic corridor that’s now open to the public and currently home to Two Persons coffee, Miles Table restaurant, and DNA Flora!

Streets Dept’s 10 Years Photo Show celebrates a decade of art on the streets of Philadelphia. Started in 2011 by photographer and curator Conrad Benner (that’s me), is an award-winning website that documents and celebrates Philly’s street art and public art. 10 Years Photo Show offers a visual look back at some of the most memorable moments from the blog’s history. From photographing artist Ishnikts yarnbombing the former Frank Rizzo monument in 2012 to commissioning artist Loveis Wise’s beloved temporary “Your Voice Has Power” mural during the 2018 midterm elections, this photography exhibition will recall fond memories for longtime Streets Dept followers and offer new folks a glimpse at the ephemeral side of Philly’s walls.

10 Years, 68 Photos

UPDATED 3/4: 10 Years Photo Show now opens March 11 through April 25, 2021; open hours are Thursdays and Fridays from 10am to 5pmSaturdays from 9am to 6pm, and Sundays from 9am to 2pm; enter BOK’s Workshop spaces through the entrance at 821 Dudley Street

Please note that BOK is following all current COVID safety guidelines, and that the exhibition space for Streets Dept’s 10 Years Photo Show will only allow a limited number of people in at a time. That just means you may need to wait for a few minutes before entering the exhibition. And as always, masks are required at all times inside BOK and this exhibition.  

Excited to share these photos and memories with you all, hope you’re able to make time for it over the next number of weeks!
